Community Mental Health Facility

A purpose-built Community Mental Health Facility will respond to the growing demand for mental health services in the Ballarat region.  

The new facility will enable services to move from the current site at the Queen Victoria building which is more than 120 years old and can no longer provide contemporary community mental health services. 
This new facility will help with early intervention services in a community-based setting, which offers the best opportunity to avoid care in a hospital environment.
 
It will overcome significant constraints posed by the current site, including inadequate space for staff, access challenges, and safety risks for staff and patients.
